Novel direct-coupled current switch architecture for a series-connected voltage-balancing pulse driver

A series-connected voltage-balancing circuit can output n-times larger voltage swing than can be output by a single transistor, where n is the number of series-connected transistors. This circuit makes it possible for high-speed low-breakdown-voltage transistors to be applied to large-voltage-swing pulse drivers, such as an optical modulator driver. This… CONTINUE READING
